Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is still expected to leave Old Trafford this summer after his agent revealed discussions over his future are ‘precarious’, The
The French teenager, who has made just one league appearance this season, was expected to feature against Ajax in the Europa League last week, but suggestions emerged that a row with United boss Sir Alex Ferguson left him on the sidelines. Pogba was forced to train with the reserves on the day of the game and the club have refused to comment on whether there had been a dispute between the two parties.
Pogba’s agent Mini Raiola, who handles Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli and AC Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has made it clear that contract talks are proving difficult. Ferguson wants to retain the 18 year old and avoid a situation similar to Ravel Morrison’s, where United lose one of their hottest prospects due to a contract dispute.
Raiola said: “It is a precarious situation. It is difficult at the moment. Manchester United want him. It is up to the boy to make some decisions. It is never nice for the player not to be in the squad. We must keep our minds cool and heads cool. Some things are not good. We know there are some clubs interested in him. We must finish first with Manchester and after that, we will see other options, if they are there.”
